In September & October

We Celebrate Hispanic Heritage

In the months of September and October we celebrate Hispanic heritage and culture. Be on the lookout for resources, events and gatherings in Walpole and your own communities, as we explore the many ethnicities within Hispanic heritage as well as their cultural experience and evolution in America.

There's a new office in town!

This school year we are excited to introduce the Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Office to the Walpole community! Jesenia Castro, MSW has been appointed to be the district's new DEI Director in addition to her role as the METCO Director. From teachers, to families, to law enforcement, Ms. Castro continues to meet with the many members that make up our Walpole community!

The Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Strategic Plan for Walpole Public Schools is to demonstrate a high level of Cultural Proficiency as evidenced by active promotion of diversity in all aspects of instruction, learning, and participation, thus ensuring equity for all and full inclusion of members of the educational and greater community.
